Clarendon Hills

Something of a maverick estate found in the heart of McLaren Vale, Clarendon Hills is a small but influential family-run winery. Today, we are delighted to offer a small parcel of their leading wine - the utterly perfect Astralis 2010.

Founded by Roman Bratasiuk, a biochemist by trade, in 1990, Clarendon Hills is a pioneering producer of Australian fine wine. This legendary estate is still shepherded to greatness by this self-taught winemaker, whose obsession with the great wines of the world has seen him produce one of them!

Deciding to focus on single-vineyard cuvées in order to convey the incredible terroirs available to him, Bratasiuk is determined to allow his wines to convey a sense of place. Thoughts of monstrously sweet, extracted, mass-produced Aussie Shiraz should be as far as possible from anyone's mind whilst considering Clarendon Hills. They are simply sublime expressions of varietal and regions.

The 1994 and 1996 vintages are in the "Greatest 1000 Wines of All Time 1727-2006".

Clarendon Hills Brookman Merlot 2007 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (92)

The wines made from Bordeaux varietals begin with the 2007 Merlot Brookman which spent 18 months in 85% new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it exhibits a superb nose of toast, pencil lead, spice box, black currant, and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with a supple texture, excellent grip, and complex, savory flavors. This lengthy effort will round out with an additional 3-4 years of cellaring.

Clarendon Hills Hickinbotham Syrah 2007 (6x75cl)

Vinous (95)

(90% new French oak) Opaque ruby. Smoky dark berry, cherry-cola, licorice and sassafras on the nose, with a lively mineral quality adding urgency. Gains complexity with air, picking up a floral nuance along with sexy Asian spice character. Fleshy and sweet in the mouth, with powerful dark fruit and floral pastille flavors supported by a firm mineral spine. Leaves a sweet trail of red and dark berries behind on the strikingly persistent, pure finish.

Clarendon Hills Onkaparinga Grenache 2007 (6x75cl)

James Halliday (94)

While the colour is slightly more developed than the ’07 Kangarilla Grenache, here the wine is in balance; spice and red berry aromas are followed by a complex palate, adding a touch of forest to the overall expression. Will be long lived if the cork permits.

Wine Spectator (93)

Firm, slightly gritty in texture, giving way to pure, focused black currant, plum and spice flavors. Weaves in a touch of tar on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2017. 566 cases made. -HS
